I'm trying to install the newest Skype version (4.1) on my Linux.
I have downloaded the skype-ubuntu-lucid_188.8.131.52-1_i386.deb package from the official Skype site.
I removed all installed versions including the configuration files.
Now when I try to install the downloaded package, I get the following errors:
Unpacking skype:i386 (from skype-debian_184.108.40.206-1_i386.deb) ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of skype:i386: skype:i386 depends on libqt4-network (>= 4:4.8.0); however: Version of libqt4-network:i386 on system is 4:4.7.4-0ubuntu8.2. skype:i386 depends on libqtgui4 (>= 4:4.8.0); however: Version of libqtgui4:i386 on system is 4:4.7.4-0ubuntu8.2. skype:i386 depends on libqtwebkit4 (>= 2.1.0~2011week13); however: dpkg: error processing skype:i386 (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils ... Processing triggers for bamfdaemon ... Rebuilding /usr/share/applications/bamf.index... Processing triggers for gnome-menus ... Errors were encountered while processing: skype:i386
Now I thought: I can install the missing dependencies manually, but trying this I got dependency errors again. It seems that dependencies of a package are not downloaded and installed automatically.
Is there a command option for
dpkg so that missing dependencies are installed automatically?
